Buckner & Langford...

Here's an interesting collaborative project between Richard Buckner and the Mekons' Jon Langford. It was recorded in 2002 at Sally Timm's apartment in Chicago and is now released on Langford's Buried Treasure Records. It's both more and less than you would expect from these 2 alt-country rocker/crooner types. The record is mostly upbeat pickin' and stompin'. There's very little of the balladeering that Buckner may be more known for. The record certainly has a very raw feel to it, which in the Buckner's case is really nice. His work lately has felt ponderous and heavy so It's nice to hear him sound like he's enjoying himself. The record is only 9 songs but they stick in the brain basket quite well. It's not the alt-country record of the year but it's a great listen and there are some really brilliant moments. I got my copy from CD Baby but I think you can order of the Buried Treasure site as well.
